Rize based Recep Tayyip Erdogan University decorated Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan with an honorary doctorate degree.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the 2012-2013 academic year Erdogan said that even though he had many honorary doctorates from various universities this one is exceptional and getting it from his hometown means a lot to him. â€œWe are in these positions not to be something but to do something. Every day (â€¦) we are reviewing what we have done or which steps we couldnâ€™t take for this country, for our people, for each and every one of our cities,â€ said Erdogan.
Prime Minister also stated that names of people will not survive by only giving them to the streets or universities. â€œNames gain a footing in peopleâ€™s hearth by their achievements. Peopleâ€™s conscience will keep the names alive,â€ said Erdogan.
